Work hard, reach for the stars and you will go far!


Go back to Our School...


Welcome to Carlton VC Cof E Primary School.  Choosing your child’s primary school is one of the most important decisions that you will make.  Your child will need to feel safe and secure and be assured that they will have access to a wide range of opportunities and experiences.

We believe that your child is entitled to the very best in education and here, at Carlton School, we offer just that.  The excellent facilities enjoyed by the school are put to full use by a very caring and committed staff, to ensure that your child reaches their full potential. 

We warmly welcome you to visit us and see for yourself.

We believe in hard work and in encouraging achievements of all kinds.  Our approach is founded on a special partnership between you as parents, the school and your child – education is most successful when parents are closely involved with their child’s development.  We will, therefore, work closely with you to ensure your child achieves the very best.

We were delighted and very proud that the School was graded Outstanding in all areas at our last Ofsted inspection as well as in our Church SIAMS, 2017. We believe we have built on this success, embedding Christian and British values to ensure behaviour and attitudes to learning are excellent, and refining our curriculm to ensure it is purposeful, progressive, inspiring and ambitious for our children. This is a reflection of all the hard work and dedication shown by staff, pupils and governors and the wonderful support given to us by parents, carers and the local community. The school has also achieved the ArtsMark, Music Mark, Healthy Schools Status, Eco Green Flag, Primary Science Quality Mark Silver Award, International School Intermediate Award and Sainsbury’s School Games Gold Award.

The School is surrounded by beautiful grounds which are used to encourage a love of and respect for, the outdoors and countryside.  Come and see for yourself what a wonderful environment that the children thrive in.  

I will look forward to meeting you.

Foreword from the Rector


I am delighted to be associated with Carlton VC C of E Primary School as a school governor and as the local vicar.


It is a warm, welcoming, happy and caring school. This is a school where every child matters and where they are encouraged to use their gifts, grow in confidence and flourish. It has a Christian ethos, while encouraging respect and understanding of other faiths, and actively supports Values Education.


The school is at the heart of the village community and the children are involved in many village events and invite and welcome members of the community to theirs. The school has a reputation for its concern for the environment and other global issues.


I warmly and wholeheartedly commend it to you and invite you to join this friendly community.


 Rev. Jacqueline Curtis 

School Vicar and Governor​
